Moving Macomb For 10 Years

Dear Participants,

It is with a heavy heart that we reach out to you today.  Our board has reached a unanimous decision to officially cancel the Let’s Move Macomb Festival of Races set to be held on its postponed date of July 26, 2020.  Even though there is much uncertainty, at this time the path forward is clear.  There will be no large gatherings allowed for the foreseeable future per the Stay Home Stay Safe directive in the State of Michigan. 

 As a community event we are saddened not to be able to celebrate your fitness goals with you.  We are further disappointed not to be able to provide assistance to charitable partners who have even greater needs during this pandemic.

In a previous email we had given you options to participate in our July date or postpone your registration to 2021.  We did hear from some of you to defer your registration.  However, at this time, given the circumstances, we have decided to process all registrations as refunds.   In about 3 weeks you will receive your registration fee less the processing fee refunded back to your original form of payment.  There will be no deferments, even for those who had previously chosen that option.  We want to start 2021 with a clean slate as I am sure many of you do as well.

For those of you that are wanting to help Macomb Food Program a local charity that has seen increased demand and a drop in resources we can convert 100% of your registration fee into a charitable donation that would greatly benefit this organization in Macomb County.

If you would like your registration fee to be converted into a charitable donation to Macomb Food Program please respond to this email no later than Monday, May 18, 2020.  If we don’t hear from you your registration fee will be refunded as stated above.

We thank you for your support and understanding as we navigated these waters.  We sincerely hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe and look forward to when we can all be together again.
